[1] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks,


"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said:

"Monks, there are these three faculties.

What three?

and vitality.

These are the three faculties."


[1] Jīvita. Cf. Buddh. Psych. Eth., p. 19. For femininity, ibid., 190-1. I translate here as 'faculties' better to suit the context.
